AKWAABA 2018: Exporting Anambra Paradise



Anambra State, led by the Honourable Commissioner for Indigenous Art, Diaspora Affairs, Culture and Tourism Mrs. Sally Uwechue Mbanefo, took part, along other states, with leading tourism destinations from the Middle East and Africa, in the just concluded AKWAABA Africa Travel Market 2018

The event which was held from Sunday September 9 to Tuesday September 11, 2018, at Eko Hotel & suites, Lagos, presented an opportunity for our dear state, Anambra, which is known as a land of several firsts, to showcase its enormous cultural artifacts and heritage with several tourist destinations.

According Mrs Mbanefo, tourism across the globe is a lucrative business.

"A lot of countries, most especially in the Middle East, get huge revenues from Tourism and nothing stops our state with its diverse tourism endowerments not to be in the forefront of Nigeria's tourism sector" she enthused.

Several cultural artifacts from the State were on display in the exhibition. All these showcasing our rich cultural heritage, God-given natural endowments and unique tourism potentials.

The former director-general of the Nigeria Tourism Development Corporation (NTDC), noted that highlighting and exhibiting our numerous cultural heritage and tourism potentials in this manner would go a long way in drawing the attention of the world, especially potential investors to this sector in Anambra state.

No doubt tourism is the greatest employer of labor and has the potential to drive any nation’s economy.

Mbanefo pledged to use her experience to turn around tourism and create jobs for youths.
